Other good sizings to try would be acrylic gel medium added to the pulp
water or into the Hollander beater, or methyl cellulose, or
hydroxyethylcellulose. These would all be used as internal sizing agents,
although the methyl cellulose and gel medium can be used as external sizing
agents too. You would thin them down with water and apply with a foam brush
preferably. These agents will not yellow and should not interact with the
alternative process substance. You can size both internally and externally.
